The plan for today is to straighten up the house, as energy allows -- I'm not feeling actively sick anymore, but if I do too much, I do get tired. Small bursts. If I'm still feeling good around 8-ish, I'm heading out for a Hugo party at Mary Robinette's -- we'll watch the awards show livestream (no tech problems, please!) and drink cocktails. I really appreciate that she's doing this; after all the Hugo drama of the last year, somehow I really want to be with congenial SF peeps as the results come in. And hey -- maybe this'll be Strange Horizons's year to finally win a Hugo (it's our third year on the Semiprozine ballot). Wouldn't that be something! Fingers crossed.
As an added plus, since the party's so late, the invite suggested fancy clothes or pajamas. And several years ago, I bought myself a pair of fancy silk pajamas for my birthday, so I get to do both at the same time. :-) I will take a photo if I actually make it to the party!
